Barefoot Cafe is the best place to hang out in Colombo. It's a chilled place to meet or make friends, see art, hear music, eat good food and drink affordable beer.
Mitsi's Cafe was one of those hidden gems we uncovered in 2013. One year down the line, the food is still good, the service is friendly and the desserts are exceptional.
Naniyori is good value for money. Decent dine-in at Nawala and best sushi delivery in Colombo.
At the end of Main Street, Pettah, there is a forgotten museum. The Old Town Hall Museum houses a variety of very heavy memorabilia from the city's past - steam-rollers, street signs, printing presses, manhole covers. It's both mundane and wonderful, housed in an open and elegant space, ignored by the swirling commerce around.
There is a Chariot in the World Trade Center and it serves sushi.
The Central Point is a completely refurbished building behind Dutch Hospital, run by the Central Bank. It's a beautiful space which now houses a money museum and a cafe.
